The FRESH & ONLYS on San Francisco have been one of the most beloved touring bands to visit Sacramento in recent years, as evidenced by their packed-to-the-gills Hub show that sounded just like their latest record because those guys are masterful and all aspects of sound. From windishagency.com: "The Fresh & Onlys newest is a shimmering pop record full of infectious melodic hooks, led by singer Tim Cohen’s hazy romanticism, and the incessantly propulsive rhythms of Shayde Sartin and Kyle Gibson. Play It Strange has an evocative moody swagger that jangles with 80’s guitar pop like the Go-Betweens, Jacobites, or early R.E.M. and a provocative rawness ala Iggy Pop or The Gun Club. The record is saturated with guitarist Wymond Miles sonic textural sprawl full of desert guitar-noir phrases that call to mind Morricone/The Bad Seeds. Play It Strange is an addictive record that will establish the Fresh & Onlys as a band that effortlessly laces together threads of great guitar bands from decades past. They may not be your favorite secret to keep much longer." http://thefreshandonlys.blogspot.com/ http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Fresh-Onlys/208978487600 http://pitchfork.com/artists/28104-the-fresh-onlys/
WOODS from NYC are the main branch of the Woodsist Records family tree. From groundcontroltouring.com: "Over the past few years Woods have established themselves as an anomaly in a world of freaks. They were an odd proposition even in the outré company of vocalist/guitarist/label owner Jeremy Earl’s Woodsist roster, perpetually out of time, committed to songsmanship in an age of noise, drone and improvisation, to extended soloing, oblique instrumentals and the usurping use of tapes and F/X in an age of dead-end singer-songwriters. Recent live shows have seen them best confuse the two, playing beautifully-constructed songs torn apart by fuzztone jams and odd electronics." http://www.myspace.com/woodsfamilyband http://woodsist.blogspot.com/2011/06/new-single-from-woods-find-them-empty.html
G. GREEN have been Sacto's best practicioners of pop-damaged weird-punk with a with fresh fun vibe. They've lately been building toward another peak of awesomeness with a regular quartet lineup hitting full stride together in preparation for a Midwest-and-back 2/3-of-the-U.S.A. tour in August. http://www.myspace.com/ggreenz
